Have you heard that the RED DRESS photo Kimmer presented as hers has been found on one of those Russian mail order bride sites by a woman named “Buzzybee” at LCF??

HERE she is!

OK I don’t know if that link works?

The Red Dress has been found. 🙂 And Ducky missed it. Dang, Ducky.

But I’m sure by Monday, when you return, there will be all sorts of new reports about the Kimtanic.

Happy Weekend All. I feel sooooo good about that pic being found. YES!

Hmm, my post of last night is gone… Anyway, I had posted that the Wiki article is down. Anyone have a copy posted elsewhere that we can read?

October 6, 2007 at 1:13 pm

Yeah, it supersucks that they deleted it. McLurky had done a great job, lots of good links. I hope it’s reinstated.

The Princess

October 6, 2007 at 2:14 pm


PD, I know – I hope to see the Wiki article soon.
McLurky, any chance you kept a copy?
Wow! I wake up this morning to a Blizzard of Red Dresses! This is great.

October 6, 2007 at 3:11 pm


I can’t get into LCF right now. Grrrr. Internet page cannot be displyed. I wonder if Heidi was letting Brandon out his hacker hat on again.

October 6, 2007 at 4:42 pm


Yep, LCF boards appear to be down. I was able to go to LCD and to the main board page, but was unable to access specific links such as Stillmans etc.

Can’t wait to see what Darth Kimmer still has up her sleeve.

My prediction is her next spin will be to play her sympathy card. She will take a page from the Paris / Brittney playbook.

October 7, 2007 at 2:13 am


Susan & Ducky, I am having to go thru the challenge procedure on Wikipedia (AGAIN). I have the support of the admins who deleted it the first time I put it up – we shall see what happens.

I AM SO PISSED that I didn’t save a copy of it! Others had gone on and edited & added so much stuff, it was really growing. I hope it will come back – I’ll spread the word when it does. Glad you appreciated it!

About.com Picks Up KTLA Kimkins Scam Story

4 10 2007

Headlining the Low Carb Diet area of About.com today, KTLA-TV breaks Kimkins “Internet Diet Scam” Story. Laura Dolson previous warned against the Kimkins diet here, and again here.

In her latest article, she writes:

The story of the Kimkins diet scam has reached the world outside the Internet. Part one of a two-part story aired on KTLA-TV in Los Angeles last night and this morning. Part two will air tonight. Happily for us, the video is available for all to see.The story contains footage of Kimmer/Heidi Diaz, who, when questioned, merely said, “no comment”. A former Kimkins dieter was interviewed, as well as the private investigator on the case, who confirmed the identity of Kimmer and Heidi Diaz as being one and the same. A spokesperson for the Better Business Bureau said that Heidi had declined to meet with them because she is “a bit shy”.

Tonight, it sounds as though they will be focusing on the health effects of the Kimkins diet. This is especially important since more people have been coming forward with health problems, including Christin, the ex-public relations person at Kimkins. Last week, this 28 year old woman had to go to the hospital with chest pains. She was found to have a heart rate that kept going under 40. Although it thankfully doesn’t appear that Christin is in immediate danger, slow heart rate can be a result of anorexia, due to the very low calorie diet. This type of diet is similar to the Kimkins variant which Christin was on. Our community here wishes Christin all the best – she is in the thoughts and prayers of many.

It’s important to note that these health problems can often happen weeks or months after the diet is stopped, as in Christin’s case. Morals of the story: 1) Don’t risk your health with extreme diets. 2) Be careful to check out health claims carefully before participating in any unfamiliar health regimen.

Not a comment on about.com but another question. Over “there” someone asked about the people mag. with cartbabe. Kimmer said:

The woman on the cover is a Kimkins member and emailed me to let me know she mentioned kimkins in the article.

Is that true?

October 4, 2007 at 6:45 pm

Thanks for the link – I’ve updated the story to include Part 2 of the broadcast as well as links to your reporting of the “Russian Bride” photos.

Kimmer Continues to Lie, “I am not Heidi”

3 10 2007

In an exclusive release of a detailed information from Kimkins, theTRUTH posts a message in which Kimmer continues to insist she is not Heidi Diaz, even though we all know better.

It is both shocking to see and incredibly telling about how far Kimmer (Heidi Diaz) will go to continue perpetuating the lies and frauds.

Kimmer wrote:

We are surprised that the extent of their investigation was to post information from the anti-Kimmer websites. We cannot make this any more plain that I am not Heidi. She and I have been friends since high school and when I began posting on the internet nearly 10 years ago I used Heidi. As I’ve mentioned, I also use other names when writing, particularly for men’s magazines. Heidi is an owner of Kimkins.com and nothing more. How do I say this nicely? She doesn’t “care” about Kimkins. Her interests are in other areas entirely. I did not trust Catherine (former partner) and Heidi stepped in as me. She has not seen the news clip but I will be seeing her this weekend.

The news clip me of the “diet review” done by About.com which also only parrots the anti-Kimmer blogs. No medical review. No impartiality. Hundreds of pro-Kimkins members wrote to Laura Dolson (who was impressed with their intelligence she told me), but didn’t change her review at all.

Oh well, can’t win them all.

The focus of Kimkins.com has always been about weight loss. We want to keep that focus. We’ve had 3 new success stories submitted this week and CONGRATS to those members! We’ll have them up soon and thanks for your generosity in sharing to motivate others!

The Kimkins partners have formed a management group headed by Tippy Toes. All of the admins, partners, staff and I are hard at work behind the scenes making Kimkins a bigger and better site for our members. Tippy Toes has graciously accepted responsibility for coordinating everyone (when does that girl sleep) and she’s doing a stellar job!

If anyone has questions, ask an admin! Danielle & Wannabefit2 are Kimkins staffers. We appreciate the enormous amount of time all admins donate to Kimkins members. They are extremely generous people.

We’ve got some exciting features to announce very soon — all designed to help with life_style_ changes for permanent weight loss. Stay tuned!

She comments in the first paragraph about it being Heidi. Then she turns around and says “In the news clip of ME…”

Which is it you big, fat, liar?????

October 3, 2007 at 4:34 pm

On the Sidelines

Ok let me get this straight. She says she is not Hedi but a size 4 girl in a red dress. Well then way did she says this:

taken from above: “The news clip ME”

Ok how can she be a size 4 girl and big the woman in the news clip.

Wake up people this woman can not keep her lies straight anymore. Please wake up before you do serious damage to yourself.

October 3, 2007 at 4:35 pm


if Heidi isn’t kimmer two questions

why didi kimmers podcast with Jimmy Moore voice come out of her mouth when she said no comment?

Why didn’t she just say no I am not that woman in that pic as I am not kimmer just a chilkdhood friend and employee?

October 3, 2007 at 4:46 pm


I am going to need a roll-eye-ectomy after this….

October 3, 2007 at 4:49 pm


Kimmer with friends like who needs enemies?

October 3, 2007 at 4:49 pm


oops you

October 3, 2007 at 4:53 pm


lmfao. hidey you’re finished!

October 3, 2007 at 4:53 pm


So, let’s take her at her word (yes, I’m choking as I say that)…then why doesn’t she just prove she’s not Heidi? It’s as simple as a podcast, a news story (which I’m sure the reporter doing the story right now would give her the opportunity to do just that). PROVE it instead of sitting behind your keyboard and tripping yourself up on your lies.

Heidi – You have lied SO much, nobody believes ANYTHING you say…you can’t even keep your own lies straight anymore. Your own postings prove yourself wrong – there isn’t even a need for a P.I. anymore, you prove the lies for us. All that the Ducky’s and theTRUTH’s in the world have to do is copy and paste your own posts, you prove yourself wrong everytime. Your day in court is coming and if you were EVER a foster parent or CASA, your fingerprints are on record sweety, so sitting in front of a judge and saying you aren’t Heidi Diaz won’t work, just set you up for more charges – perjury. We know the truth, you know the truth, you are just grasping at straws.

Sorry for the rant, but on top of being duped out of my hard earned money, this woman is now insulting my intelligence. It it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it’s certainly not a dog, it’s a duck…yes, that pun is intended! It is Heidi, we all know it – and she continues to think she is going to get away with this.

October 3, 2007 at 5:20 pm



You are a lying sack of SNATT!

October 3, 2007 at 5:41 pm

Just Ducky

We accidentally deleted a comment and aren’t sure even which post it was made to. It included links to archives of the Kimkins website prior to the changes now underway. If that person can repost, it would be greatly appreciated.

October 3, 2007 at 5:46 pm


Tippy toes and management used together in the same sentence is just plain hilarious!!!

Does anybody know if anyone has posted or tried to post the link to the newscast on Kimkins today?

October 3, 2007 at 5:50 pm


What will happen when Heidi is ordered by the court to produce kimmer and she can’t/won’t?

October 3, 2007 at 5:53 pm


Remember that psychopaths don’t break even when they’re caught.
They typically try to befriend the police and detectives as someone who’s “not-guilty-just-trying-to-be-a-helpful-citizen” would.

October 3, 2007 at 6:59 pm


I just hope they don’t try to put Kimmer and Heidi in separate jail cells. Could get messy.

October 3, 2007 at 7:20 pm


Heidi was her cousin, then her friend, then some random business partner, etc…pleaaaaaaaaaase.

Why would you be partner in something you care nothing about? It happens when big bucks are made and complicated projects arise, but it’s a diet site that apparently all you have to do is sit at your keyboard all day to control. I don’t think that comment is CLOSE to making sense about Heidi not caring.

ALL before pictures match with Heidi. The fun part is that Kimmers old avatar on LCF is the same person in the before pictures/dating site pictures of Heidi…which is the same person in Kimmer’s before picture…


How can someone be so dumb? She doesn’t follow the diet so obviously doesn’t have light-headedness, nausea, or brain damage…except maybe from staring at the screen all day…

“I did not trust Catherine (former partner) and Heidi stepped in as me”

Does that just not add up to anyone else?

October 3, 2007 at 7:31 pm


Catherine never met kimmer/heidi, so that’s just an off-the-wall claim anyway.

October 3, 2007 at 10:11 pm


Right, Stiff, yet she has also claimed that Heidi knows nothign about Kimkins and doesn’t care, she just collects the money. So how would Heidi “step in for her” without any Kimkins knowledge?

And IF IF IF IF Heidi and Kimmer were two different peeps (and pigs really do fly) why doesn’t Heidi just whip out Kimmer’s pic and say, “look, HERE”s the woman in the red dress who lost all the weight, this is Kimmer!” She doesn’t even try to defend herself. If that was MY friend and she was the one who lost the weight but I was bankrolling the business, I’d sure put her face on everything and make it clear that she was the success story. I wouldn’t run and hide and say No Comment.

Sheesh, people, wake up!!!

Kimmer’s ‘before’ picture is without a doubt the same woman that Kimmer claims is Heidi.
So…she used a picture of Heidi as her before picture and then her own picture as her after picture??? Does she even know what she’s saying anymore.
How can anyone read that explanation and still believe her?

October 4, 2007 at 1:34 pm

Not Heidi Either

Kimmer isn’t Heidi?

Who cares? We’ll take Heidi. We can prove Heidi started Kimkins, we can prove she’s taking money for it, hiring the admins, paying for the server. She is Kimkins. If she’s not Kimmer, who cares, she’s as culpable and guilty as Kimmer then. If Kimmer has done such a good job pretending to be Heidi, then Heidi will not be able to prove she’s *not* Kimmer.

Let Heidi take the fall for you, Kimmer, we don’t care. We’ll take her and let her pay for your mistakes. She won’t be able to avoid paying for them because she won’t be able to prove she’s not Kimmer unless you come forward and then we have you.

WIN-WIN. For us. Either we, we got ya (or Heidi). 😉

Kimmer Plays it Cool

3 10 2007

This morning, after KTLA’s segment last night, featuring Kimkins as an ‘internet scam’, Kimmer (Heidi Diaz) is downplaying the significance of the broadcast and remains calm and cool to members.

With no remorse or explanation about the broadcast, Kimmer is posting away in an attempt to quiet any questioning, and banning members who dare speak up.

On the thread ‘Ask Kimmer’ a member wrote:

Just want to publicly throw in my two cents about all the controversy swirling around us. I know you would get a lot of flack if you did this, Kimmer, but–I wouldn’t care a bit if you took out all the negative stuff. I think the time for reaction to and self-_expression_ regarding all the people leaving, the lawsuit, etc. needs to have run its course. Those of us who are trying to focus on the program keep running into all that “stuff” on just about every thread we turn to. Enough is enough!

Kimmer replied:

I know. We’re doing our best to keep it off the site. People who enjoy reading it can find it at 1,001 other places. Meanwhile, stay focused, do your work, let your body show you what it can do!

On another thread, Kimmer wrote:

Maybe I can shed some light?

The point of this website — the entire reason it exists — is to help people lose weight. When there’s interference with that intent, we take action. Whether that is banning troublemakers or removing elements that distract from our purpose, we do it.

Personally I don’t like negativity on this site. I’ve said it a thousand times and I still mean it. If anyone is unhappy or disillusioned, there are a ton of other websites to vent your feelings. Or, start an anti-Kimmer blog like the “popular kids”. Sorry, bad humor. Everyone is 100% to their opinion. Absolutely. Just take the negative opinions elsewhere.

Or, you could just lose weight?

Those of you who have been members since the website started have seen regular changes to the front page. I think we are on #5 “facelift”? Our graphic guys get bored and every few months they get an urge to make changes. Unfortunately, this change was stopped midway. The brother of our lead graphic person is having open heart surgery and the balance of the design changes have been postponed a few days.

They’ve got ideas for another front page change a few months from now. It’s the nature of the beast.

And on yet another thread, inquiring about the removal of success stories from the site, Kimmer wrote:

I’m right here!

We are renovating the front page. We needed more space on the top menu bar so some elements were removed. Success stories are still there in photo form on the right side and expanded to show 5 at a time. We’ll be adding 3 new success stories this week!

The naysayers would love for me to chat on … so I won’t. We’ve got some new support resources for members coming up, too! Keep an eye out!

PI Case Notes About Kimkins & Kimmer

3 10 2007

The Private Investigator who was retained to find Kimmer (Heidi Diaz) released some case notes online, at his company’s website.

He posted:

I have been a private investigator in Riverside County, California for many years and have seen a lot of scams and fraudulent activities throughout those years. This one is quite different in that it has involved thousands of real people so desperate in their search for a “real” diet that works.

During my involvement with this case, I have read so many stories from people that have been hurt by an evil woman with no regard for the feeling or health of real human beings.

Maybe this woman does not feel that she is actually hurting people since she just sits in her apartment all day long typing away at the keyboard.

I began this investigation with a bad address and no other information other than the name of Heidi Kimberly Diaz.

Through investigative techniques, I was able to locate Ms. Diaz’s address. I attempted making contact with her at the front door to positively identify her. No one would come to the door. I looked down and observed a small trash bucket at the front entry door with Kimkins receipts facing up. This was the confirmation I needed that this was indeed the correct address.

During the several days spent on surveillance, I observed Ms. Diaz out of the apartment twice. She was usually seated at a window on her computer. I remember thinking “what a strange woman”, just sitting at the computer all day long creating diet schemes to take money from people who have placed their hopes in her hands to help them lose weight.

I passed by her vehicle one day and noticed a tray of sugar cookies with sprinkles just recently opened and sitting on the passenger seat of her mini van. This from a woman telling other people to eat 500 to 800 calories a day all the while she is taking in much much more than that.

The first day out, Ms. Diaz drove to a local gas station and returned to her residence. She sat inside her vehicle for a half hour while talking on the cell phone. (Probably talking to a customer.) The video was short since Ms. Diaz did not engage in much activity. I was determined to obtain quality photo shots for my client and prepared for continuing surveillance.

Days went by and boredom crept in. I would exit my vehicle to walk through the apartment complex to stretch and get fresh air. While walking passed Ms. Diaz’s apartment unit, I would look up and notice her in the window on the second level of the building. She would look down and smile while seated near at the window, typing away on her computer. I found it strange that a woman would sit at an open window without her wig, being that Heidi is bald.

From time to time, I would notice Brandon, Heidi’s son exit the unit to leave with friends that would not come near the apartment. I figured that either Brandon is not allowed to have friends over or Brandon’s friends would rather not visit inside the apartment unit. Brandon and Heidi were the only two people ever observed entering or departing from the apartment.

The day finally came! Tuesday, August 14, 2007. Heidi finally emerges to depart from the area driving her mini van. The sweet thing that all investigators hope for while on surveillance…movement! I followed Ms. Diaz to a local mail drop where Kimkins customers send their mail. The sweet sweet sound, click click click of the camera as Ms. Diaz exited the vehicle to enter the mail drop. I say sweet sound only because this meant that the final moment had come. The ending of surveillance on a case of such drawn out inactivity. The clicking continued on as Ms. Diaz returned to her vehicle to depart with mail in hand.

She immediately drove to a local Norco bank to, I would assume, deposit fresh checks she had picked up at the mail drop from unknowing victims of deceit and fraud.

After making the deposit, Ms. Diaz drove to a local CVS Pharmacy. I found this a great opportunity to follow Ms. Diaz in with a hidden camera to obtain as much movement as possible just to add the finishing touch to a much anticipated ending.

Ms. Diaz drove home afterward and the sweet sound began again to end the day.

This is the story of how I obtained the video and photos of Heidi Diaz.

I would like to thank Catherine McDonald for her kindness and for the wonderful job she did with our website. I highly recommend Catherine if you are in need of a quality website and great search engine recognition.

Catherine and I have had an ongoing business relationship during the past couple of months and I have never worked with anyone so kind and gracious. She is truly a wonderful person.

Thank you Martin at Slamboard.com for bringing this whole thing together and for the recognition that you provided our business.

I am very impressed with Jeannessa. She has brought together a team of well recognized attorneys and press.

I met with Chip Yost the other day. He is a reporter with KTLA. We interviewed for about an hour. Chip has been really moving on this matter and is leaving no tables unturned. Thank you Chip.

Congratulations to the blogging community for their unwavering determination to bring justice to this matter. What a great bunch of people!
